NYE

The countdown reaches zero

and the fireworks pop

champagne is flowing,

the celebration won’t stop.

Cheers grow silent

all around the room

as kisses are shared

banishing last year’s gloom.

I sit back and observe

knowing this is not for me

and thinking that next to you

is where I’d rather be.

I remember your strength

in a way everyone could see

and for the longest time

you were who I wanted to be.

I can see your strength now

in a way almost no one can see

and I know without doubt

you’re stronger than I could ever be.
